As a young entrepreneur, we all know that you have got a lot on your plate. Being a twenty-something professional in the business world (or even in your thirties) can be rough, but when you decide to become your own boss, you are guaranteed to face even more challenges as a result of your age. There is no way around it, regardless of how brilliant you are, people don’t trust young experts. They want from a business partner to be market-savvy and wise; in other words, they want an older entrepreneur.
Consequently, you will have to go the extra mile to convince your audience, partners, and investors that you are worthy of their attention. You can’t afford to be just good. You need to be the best you can be, and more importantly, better than more experienced business-owners if you want to make a positive impression. Unfortunately, modern society is biased against youthful professionals.
So, you have to work harder than ever before. But if there is one thing you should never do to gain your audience’s trust, it is to let your work take over your health issues. More and more young entrepreneurs put their health at risk by ignoring benign issues. Wealth means little without health!
Here are the top 3 health troubles you need to be aware of in your position as a younger entrepreneur or startup founder:
1. Don’t postpone dental appointments
If you don’t have your wisdom teeth yet, be prepared for them to grow. They tend to appear during your 20s or early 30s. When they do, if they are perfectly aligned in your mouth, you might not even notice they’re growing.
However, they can cause issues that are too wrongly attributed to tooth-grinding stress. Indeed, if your teeth can’t emerge properly – because they don’t have to grow – they can lead to infection in your jaw which, if left unattended, could affect your other teeth and even your gums. To avoid tooth loss at a young age, you might have to consider wisdom teeth removal. Ultimately, if you are experiencing frequent pain, it is a good idea to consult a dentist instead of relying on aspirin or other painkillers.
2. Self-diagnosed anxiety is not a good idea
Entrepreneurs lead a stressful lifestyle. However, chronic stress and pressure can encourage anxiety disorder. If you find yourself struggling with some situations, you can naturally develop coping mechanism and treatment such as using CBD oil for relief. However, it is important to stay attentive to your symptoms. If you turn to the Internet for new solutions every day, then it is a sign that you can’t control your anxiety alone. It is crucial to find specialist support before it causes too much damage.
3. Weight issues that don’t go away
So you may have been skinny as a student, but you have gained weight since you left college. This common issue can be the result of a variety of factors, but typically it is connected to a reduction in activities and an increase in food intake. However, you shouldn’t ignore weight issues, especially as it could be an indication of thyroid disease. Indeed, your thyroid functions slow down when you are stressed. Chronic and long-term stress can cause lasting problems.
Wellness That Works
Young entrepreneurs go through a lot of stress, which can affect the body and the mind. However, it is important to understand that while stress can cause some health issues, you need to stop looking for excuses to avoid doctor appointments. Left unattended, many unremarkable complaints can have long-term consequences on your physical and mental health.
